The emphasis is on the use of hands to manipulate the spine to treat conditions such as:
- lower back pain
- neck pain
A chiropractor can also provide advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle.
Each session is likely to last 15 to 30 minutes. The chiropractor will assess your physical condition and take a detailed medical history, including information about previous injuries or operations. The number of sessions required will dependent on the condition, however typically 6-12 will suffice.
Chiropractic is regulated by UK law; The Chiropractors Act 1994 states that practitioners must be registered with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC). This is the regulatory body established by Parliament and part of their role is to set the standards for education and training and to establish a code of practice that all practitioners must adhere to. It is a criminal offence for anyone to describe themselves as a Chiropractor without being registered with the GCC.
